The Best and Worst of June and July Fashion Magazines


The summer was slow and lazy for the fashion industry, as it tends to be. After the John Galliano trial, the news was about as exciting as a photo of a model lounging next to an air conditioner. Yet photos of models lounging next to air conditioners (and being summery in other ways) were in no short supply, especially while wearing outlandish items of apparel: British Vogue explored the world of novelty swishy pants, Canadian Flare explored the many ways to wear hot yellow, and Dazed & Confused showcased a cape that looked to be made of rainbow-colored rabbit feet. See those spreads, Karlie Kloss looking gorgeous and grown-up, Janelle Monae in a bathtub with Karl Lagerfeld, a truly frightening tan line, and more in the slideshow.
